Bruce was my older brother, he was four years older than me. When we were growing up on the farm I always tagged along. I had a great time with him. Almost every day we would do things together. We would play catch, take batting practice, throw a football. In the winter we would hurry through chores so we could go up into the hay mow and shoot baskets. We would swim in the farm pond, fish and hunt together. In addition, we worked well together farming. I learn a lot from him. He made my early years a wonderful experience. Dale D.
